Blossoms and Blackbirds

Lenna Lidstone on 20th May 2020

As we experience ‘Lockdown’ because of the Coronavirus, an encouragement has been the blackbirds’ song. The apple tree, resplendent with blossom has filled the view from my bedroom window. There, amongst the branches, blackbirds sing their hearts out. No matter how I feel the blossoms are beautiful and the birds keep singing. Life has slowed […]

Be My Certainly

Stacy Sagely on 13th May 2020

I don’t think Jesus’ disciples were afraid of the water that day, or even the wind that was so contrary. I believe the fear came when they were unable to recognize the object moving towards them (because it’s the unfamiliar that moves towards you in the familiar that brings the fear.)

Finding the opportunities in uncertain times

Emily Ackerman on 16th March 2020

Our shower is getting old and eccentric. When I turn it on the water quickly turns hot, then once I get in, it goes cold. On a good day, after a minute or two it heaves a sigh and turns hot again. Otherwise it stays cold. This morning I tried a new strategy. I hopped […]

Review: God Untamed

Dr Ben Pugh on 3rd March 2020
